"My" group, tentatively called the 12:30 All-Stars, is not really my group. A bunch of us play together as often as possible, and the hang got going thanks to the energy of Nick Clark and Matt Muehling in particular, plus the ever-significant contributions of guys like Carter Arrington, Phil Adair, Daniel Watson, Dave Sierra, Chris McQueen, Paul Deemer, and Bennett Wood. These are some of my favorite Austin musicians to play with, and I'm really excited to be getting some of them out to the Elephant Room this month.
Got a few more public dates added since my last update, so here we go:
8/13: Vintage 15 on KXAN, 7:00am (!), Austin, TX
8/13: Vintage 15 at Swan Dive, midnight, Austin, TX
8/17: Monster Big Band at the Elephant Room, Austin, TX
8/18: Nelo at Cirrus Logic, Austin, TX
8/20: Rotelle and the Hot Tomatoes at the Oasis, Austin, TX
8/25: The Vineyard, Florence, TX
8/28: My group at the Elephant Room, Austin, TX
9/4: Nelo at Schotzi's, College Station, TX
There are definitely going to be more dates rolling in with Nelo, so keep your ear to the ground. We'll be playing around Texas and the country as often as possible, and there's been talk of a long-overdue tour of the Southeast... that's gonna be bananas...
